Fine Art is the creation and the study of visual art. It educates and inspires students to pursue a career as an artist or to follow a wide range of other creative practices and career pathways associated with art and creativity.
When you join us, you will study options in painting, sculpture, printmaking, video and photography, while also studying drawing and contextual and professional studies.
As you progress into year two of the Fine Art (Hons) BA programme offered at De Montfort University you’ll develop your individual studio practice in one or more of these areas. You’ll then have the opportunity to explore a range of approaches to fine art via projects, workshops and self-directed study.
- The course is designed to develop the skills that you will need to compete in a professional creative market. Our graduates go on to work in a variety of art and art-related careers in a variety of areas, including conservation and restoration, art therapy, theatre design, film and television production, illustration, publishing, gallery management and the crafts.
- Artist Jonjo Elliott headed to Hollywood after being talent spotted by a gallery just months after graduating from DMU.
- After graduation, the DMU Art Network provides support and resources to ensure our recent graduates achieve professional success in the art industry. The network is supported by influential artists Brendan Neiland and Christian Furr.
